No Love, no friendship, no kindness is ever wasted.





(an experimental utopian prose adventure)


In dangerous times, we need to remember what we have almost lost. Take a walk and climb, look out to sea, let the salt waves surge over gorse flower, peace to arrive softly, mingling with our days,with  restorative sigh.
Remember too, that no friendship, no kindness is ever wasted. Tiptoe gently through the land, allow words of comfort to scatter,leave them on park benches, allow them to float down easily, for anyone to claim. There is no such thing as loving in vain, true, one  can love someone who does not return it back. But for every unrequited  love another bigger love is born. The more  people you like, the more people will like you.I really wish it was as simple as this.The more you give, the more will be yours to give, forget about profit, forget about war.
Remember that the more smiles you put into circulation, the more will fly back. Let love and friendship and smiles be the currency of life. Not to be hoarded, to be shared, for all to benefit, to be kept in constant circulation, then, we all benefit, under the moon and sun, every scent and seed spread, wonderful, all born in individual moments, all born equal, not tarnished by injustice, essences of innocence born strongly with new beginnings.
These are dangerous times, but our  infinite possibilities contain keys to unlock the doors, we are denizens all,  here for a short time, tread carefully, follow hands and the trail of sunsets, adventures mixed with diversity, return to tomorrow, be alive with mystery, knock on doors of memory, when moments come calling with doubt and bewilderment, shoulder to shoulder, we can learn.Together we are strong, strained of all its worries and misfortunes, life could be unendurable, shaped with the glow of possibility, breathing gently, unveiling a future world of heddwch/peace.

  1. You are very optimistic Dave, but things are not so simple! Ok the message is simple if everybody would follow it! But just these days, you see what there is around ( islamic attempt in Paris etc.). Personally I felt very frustrated by some wasted friendships in the past. Now I try to be more careful. Wasted love? This happened too not long ago (but so many people went through that!!!) and it can spoil your life. Although you can write excellent poems and prose about "lost love"...

  2. I know what you are saying Franca, it was deliberately optimistic, mere utopian fantasy, an ideal, what could be, what we have lost, my original words were much darker, but after Wednesday's events, thought I would try something lighter... regards....

  3. Keep spilling words of love, maybe they are utopian, better than tears of despair in these troubled times.
